                  JUDGING CRITERIA

                  The judges will be looking for companies or campaigns that can clearly demonstrate transparent success over the past 12 months. Our judges are seeking companies or campaigns that have seized challenges and created opportunities.

                  Judges will require evidence to substantiate all entries and this could include details of financial performance, results in terms of KPI, creative evidence in terms of a sizzle reel, still images, or links to the final project. The judges will also consider the structure, presentation and clarity of each entry. Interested in being a judge? Submit your nomination here.

                  THE JUDGING PROCESS

                  Judges will read and pre-score all entry forms, considering any supporting materials submitted. Judges will be asked to give a score for each question within the entry form relating to Digiday's four criteria: innovation, creativity, consumer value, and results. These will be combined to give an overall score for each entry. All judges pre-scores will then be combined and the highest scoring entries will determine the shortlists.


                  All material will remain confidential to the judges, who are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Only the "Credits" section of an entry is subject to be made public.




                  Can I submit from outside the U.S.? 

                  Yes, the Digiday Technology Awards are open globally. 

                  Can I submit without my client's name becoming public?

                  Yes. So long as you leave your client's name out of the 'Credits' section located at the bottom of the entry form, they will not be made public alongside your name. 

                  What parts of my entry are made public?

                  The only information that is ever publicized is the 'Credits' section of your entry, should you be named a finalist or winner. 

                  Should this program be entered like a case study?

                  Yes. The suggestion is for this program to be entered from a cast study perspective. So, using our prompts to prove how X client was able to achieve Y through the use of your platform.

                  What is the eligibility period?

                  The eligibility period spans the 12 months prior to the June Early Deadline date and ends on the Early Deadline.  

                  Can I edit my submission after the deadline?

                  No. Your submission must be completed in its entirety by the deadline date. There will be no re-accessing submissions after payment. 

                  Whose contact information should we include on the entry form?

                  We use the included contact information for all updates regarding your entry. You should also include a secondary contact & email address in case we aren't able to connect with you.

                  What if my company or a competitor has a judge on the jury panel?

                  We recuse judges from scoring any categories their company or a direct competitor submits to. 

                  When and how are finalists announced?

                  The shortlist will be announced on Digiday.com. The specific date will be included within the confirmation email received post entry. All entrants will be notified, whether you are named a finalist or not, via the email address you included on your entry. 

                  When and how are the winners announced?

                  All winners are announced virtually via a live ceremony. The exact date will be announced with the shortlist. 

                  Can I license the use of the Digiday Technology Awards logo?

                  Yes. Our licensing program provides you with the opportunity to further the reach of your win through the use of our seal on your website, via social media, email signatures and more.
